The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

The Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale is coming back soon for its third season. Praise be!

 

Warning: spoilers ahead.

 

A quick recap of what happened in season two of The Handmaid’s Tale, the season finale left us with a major cliffhanger. Elizabeth Moss’s character June/Offred had a chance at freedom but chose to stay in Gilead to rescue her daughter, Hannah. It was a shocking moment in the show, to say the least, and now the real battle with the regime’s higher-up’s is about to begin.

 

The first full-length trailer was released and it’s amazing. We hear June’s voice saying, “Heresy. That’s what you get punished for, not for being part of the resistance. Not for helping people escape, because officially, there’s no such thing as escape.” From the looks of the trailer, Mrs. Waterford, Nick, and Bradley Whitford’s Commander Lawrence will be the among her allies this upcoming season. We will also see Alexi Bledel’s character Emily escape out of Gilead with June’s baby. Intense.

 

 

Here are the details to know about The Handmaid’s Tale season 3.

 

The release date: Wednesday, June 5th.

 

June’s fight against Gilead’s regime is a central plot line. Showrunner Bruce Miller told The Hollywood Reporter, “She’s ready to rise up, and ready to take some chances and use all the skills she’s learned over the last three years.” Elizabeth Moss told EW in an interview, “You have to fight fire with fire. That’s become [June’s] journey in season 3. To fight against the people she has to fight, she has to become like them.”

 

Emily and baby Nicole’s escape from Gilead. Miller told CNN, “There’s a lot of people who want her, including the whole country of Gilead- if she happens to get out. She’s the next generation that they’re all doing all of this for.”

 

Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd) is alive. Producer Warren Littlefield said Emily’s knife attack incident “transformed” her.
